    Nice and knowledgeful, but room for improvement on his own time management and scheduling.

  • David Sperino

    Went from little understanding of my golf swing to a full understanding. Scotty teaching me the basics and to clear my head. All in the posture and feel, which he was able to show me through his swing as well as filming my own. Close friend of mine now, would recommend SMGA to anyone who needs a complete revamp, small tune up or anything in between. Top notch.

  • Frank M. Longo

    Scott has a way of bringing a true understanding of the game to anyone, no matter what level player you are. From mechanics to tactics he will take you from average to exceptional, and all the while you will be having a great time playing instead of just being frustrated with your game. I highly recommend Scott to anyone looking to not just improve their golf game but also bring a new level of understanding to it as well.

  • Patrick D. Beach

    Scotty Matuza is one of the most well rounded golf professionals and businessmen out there. I have moved North to Orlando but am still given every opportunity to communicate with Scott. He has helped me with a health and wellness program from 3 hours away. He remembered what we had done 5 years ago and was able to send me the paperwork. Along with all that he has introduced me to multiple people within the golf industry. Bernie Garsen was the latest of people I was introduced to. I have followed his Facebook and Tour players for quite some time now. My review of the Garsen Pro Grip can be found on Scott's page as well. I look forward to continuing my relationship with Scott Matuza Golf for quite some time!

Q & A

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

My typical new client or student routine varies. I like to always go over the proper grip stance and set up. But after that I like to see physical limitations. Meaning I will put you through hell that first lesson. If I need to, I will break your swing down and rebuild it back up all in the same Session. What we try to do at Scott Matuza Golf is try to find something to relate to in your swing to Many of the analogies I will play off in my head and break it down for you in term that you understand and can deliver once I put the golf club back in your hands. That's why I say I am a tough swing coach. But I will almost guarantee improvement with our style of instruction. Between my assistant and I it's like getting two private swing coaches for the price of one.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

Been playing this game for 30+ years already.  Played colliegate golf at NCC & JWU having the pleasure of feeling what winning a National Title felt like.  After college I turned professional in 2005 and tried my luck on the mini tour circuit before realizing my talent and passion for instructing.  Since then I have created my own unique style of teaching.  I was know on tour for my wedge game and short game so I boast those two things hugely amongst my clients.  The next is course management.  I feel with my set of skills and knowledge from past experinces I can help anyone. 


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

I am EXPENSIVE.  But I include all the costs of practice balls and greens fees for ev series purchased.  My regular hour is $300.00 - this is so people know I am serious and my time is valuable.

All my series are spread out to fit your specific wants and needs to improve.  So we will always have options.

$875.00 - 6hrs

$1,250.00 - 9hrs

$1,575.00 - 12hrs

$2000.00 - 16hrs

$5,000.00 - 20hrs

$10,000.00 - 40hrs

I really like to customize everything to each specific player.  As i said earlier I am a touch coach, I just want you to improve and not waste your money and my time.


How did you get started teaching?

I started teaching and instructing top players because I was trying to become one.  My wake up call came back in 2008 season when i failed to make a cut after posting -10.  In that moment I knew I was a great player but just wasnt going to make it to the fulltime playing section.  So I took a step back and asked a lot of my close friends in the business, PGA Pro buddies and took all that information and decided that being a swing coach and helping everyone at all levels get that same understanding that I have and that same passion for that game that was instilled in me long ago.  Well that is priceless in itself and I put all my eggs in one basket and went after it.  I am here today preaching that story.


What types of students have you worked with?

Currently I am working with Ross Beal PGA Tour Canadian Tour player as well as ranked.  I instruct every type of player.  The better of player the harder coach I will become.  I demand improvement or I have multiple collegues that would love to steal your money.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

As well as owning my golf academy I am also a PGA TOUR REP for Garsen Golf Putter Grips.  We have Stenson, Finau to name a couple on our team.  I am also a PLAYERS STAFF REPRESENTATIVE for the WILSON GOLF STAFF COMPANY.  My academy is fully sponsored by this new and upcoming tee product called  "The GelTee"

Recently I was at the Barclays at Bethpage for the Playoff series on the PGA TOUR.  Its always nice to be in your own backyard when your working.  Great experince


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

What are they looking to get out of private or group lessons with a swing coach. What are their personal goals. And be honest with your goals and expectations. I always tell my clients I can tell
If your practicing or not. Reason being most Pros won't tell you this. I for one don't sugar coat anything which is good and bad. But most good coaches can teach one thing 10 different ways. The key to a good coach is watching your improvements. And making sure your always improving cause if not again your wasting your money and that certain swing coaches time.
